A middle-aged man in his living room is watching the creation of the cosmos through a gallery of encyclopedic images where the human being is never present, except for some of his works, ruins or activities. He falls asleep, lulled by the vision of an advertisement that features a woman, and finds himself in an awful nightmare where he witnesses the hunting of some polar bears by arctic hunters. All the while, two pieces of contemporary music by the composer Dario Agazzi and a text inspired by a childhood memory of the director related to a suicidal event, suggest us to “write once, erase twice”.
